Program Description:

University of Leeds

Why Leeds?

The University of Leeds (sometimes called Leeds University) is a university in Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK. It first started in 1831 with the opening of a school to teach medicine which was one of the first outside of London, Oxford, and Cambridge.  Today, the University is home to 24,000 undergraduate students and is considered one of the best universities in the UK.  Leeds offers more more than 500 degree programs with most modules open to visiting students. Though all reserach at Leeds is on the cutting edge, Leeds has developed expertise in unique areas such as color chemistry, fire science, and pilot studies.

Academic Highlights

The Summer School runs for four weeks and comprises two 2-week blocks, running consecutively. Each 2-week module is worth 10 Leeds credits so by completing the four-week programme you will receive 20 Leeds credits (6 US or 10 ECTS overall). You must attend for the full four weeks.

There are four modules in each block - when you apply you should select one module from each.

If you successfully complete Leeds International Summer School you will receive a University of Leeds transcript with individual grades for each course and a Certificate of Attendance.

Student Life

Living in Leeds

The University is on a single campus about a ten-minute walk away from Leeds city centre. It is an eclectic mix of the old and the new reflecting its 100 years history. Brand new buildings and state-of-the-art facilities co-exist with impressive older landmark buildings.  Everything you are likely to need is on campus, with the added benefit of the bustling city a stone's throw away. Leeds is the 'capital' of the Yorkshire and Humber region and a renowned centre for shopping, arts, sport, leisure, entertainment and nightlife. It has everything you would expect from a major city and is surrounded by beautiful, accessible countryside and many places of interest.
Escape from the bustle of the city is not far.  Over 65% of the Leeds district is green belt land and the city centre is less than twenty miles (32 km) from the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which offers some of the most spectacular scenery and countryside in the UK.


While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
